The dreaded airwall and how to deal with it!

When your reception does not use all of the space in a ballroom or banquet space, it is often sub-divided using an airwall. I have to say that most are unattractive, though some venues actually upholster them to match the walls!

There are several ways to deal with this or any other unsightly area!

For this lounge we used pipe and drape - commonly available through your designer or rental company.

Fabrics give complete coverage and create whatever atmosphere you like. In this case our client wanted a tented feel.

The most cost effective solution is lighting in many instances. For this client, we made the wall a 'feature' for the cost of 3 gobos!

Of course you could also opt to use the whole space. In our next post we'll share some ideas to keep the space from feeling too large!
